Mobilising the Potential of Active Ageing in Europe

0

Through scientific research, stakeholder engagement and dissemination, MoPAct advanced the knowledge base required in promoting the formulation and implementation of policies and initiatives that support a new paradigm of active and healthy ageing. The project engaged with a critical mass of researchers, policy-makers, civil society partners and practitioners as well as older people, with the aim of identifying products, practices, and policies that can turn life expectancy gains into an instrument that supports successful social and economic development. The multi-disciplinary team involved in the project aimed at targeting the following key challenges of ageing: i) the continuing longevity revolution; ii) a shrinking and ageing labour force; iii) the fiscal sustainability of pensions, welfare systems and health care; iv) the structural lag between changes in society and subsequent changes in societal institutions and attitudes; v) the rising need for long-term care; and vi) the changing social and political roles.
